17 month old Valentine!


Big girl! I am so proud to be your mommy and tote around such a beautiful, personable, curious, caring, and inquisitive little tot. We certainly have had an exciting month full of weather adventures, sickness, traveling, playdates, park visits, parties, and so much more. Each month brings us so many endeavors. You and I continue to learn together everyday and I cherish every moment we share (yes, even those moments when you really try my patience!). Go Team Adamo!

Lately, here’s what you’ve been up to:

- eating better than last month…phew! Still a picky eater, but at least we can always get you to eat pita pizza, grilled cheese, oatmeal (this is how mommy sneaks in fruits and veggies! A little cinnamon and nutmeg can go a long way!), goldfish crackers, and yogurt.

- talking, talking, talking! A few of your favorite words are baby, Mommy, Daddy, bye bye, thank you, go go (car), AAAH (cat), shoes.

-communicating through signs is a favorite, too. Please, up, milk, eat, and more are your most used signs these days.

-you’re getting better and better at sharing. Thank you to all of your friends who help you learn this valuable lesson!

-you’ve decided that playing in your crib is suuuuuuuuuuuper fun! Mommy’s not a fan of this new habit, but you can always count on Daddy to give you what you want. He’s such an enabler for his little doodle bug :)


- and new toy that Mommy often finds in your hand (or mouth) is a pacifier. I’m thankful you never picked up on this habit as a wee one because I’d certainly be paying for it now if I had to take it away. I don’t mind you playing with it for fun, but let’s not make this too much of a habit!


-ooooo…Mommy is not a fan of another recent stage you’ve entered. Screaming! You think its so fun and as music teachers, Mommy and Daddy know the importance of allowing you to explore your “natural instrument” but man is it loud! I’ve been playing up the whole “that hurts Mommy’s ears” bit complete with sad faces and such…occasionally you sympathize and quiet down :)


We all know I can go on and on bragging about my little stinker, so I can stop for now. I just love this little so much! We’ll both have to wait in suspense to see what’s in store for us next month. Mommy loves you, Baby Girl!


  1. I keep trying to age your little girl! She is only 17 months! Oops!! I keep saying 18! I. Can't. Count.

  2. my husband doesn't like baked goods either -boooo! it really is a problem!!
